Pew: More Americans Following ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Than David Petraeus Investigation

Pew: More Americans Following ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Than David Petraeus Investigation

More Americans say they are following the so-called "fiscal cliff" negotations in Washington, D.C., a debate between Democrats and Republicans over a solution to an end-of-the-year mix of tax increases and spending cuts, than they are following the investigation of now former CIA Director David Petraeus after he admitted to engaging in an extra-marital affair, a new Pew study has found:

The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted Nov. 15-18 among 1,002 adults, finds that nearly identical percentages of Republicans (36%) and Democrats (35%) say they very closely followed the debate over the automatic spending cuts and tax increases that will take effect at the beginning of next year unless the president and Congress act. Republicans are about as interested as Democrats in the Petraeus investigation (28% vs. 21%).

2. True but republicans much more likely to be 'closely' following the Benghazi investigation.

Benghazi is more important to republicans than the 'fiscal cliff'. What a sad commentary on their party.
